[TR] Oil pump filter

I agree.  If the mesh is good, I see no reason to replace.  Having said that, I’d say about 50% have some kind of wear or damage which results in the mesh not being intact.


On a separate note, I once had a new engine which just didn’t seem to generate enough oil pressure.  I started pulling it apart and found I had not installed a gasket on the base of the oil pump.  To my surprise, replacing a gasket made a big difference.  It is such a small and flimsy item, I was surprised it was responsible.

With the pan off is it a good idea to replace the oil pump filter or can you remove it and clean it out?
